I doubt you'll ever go to jail for it. So, no, it's not "illegal".

 

However, it does make you a massive TOOL if you do do it.

No Its not 'illegal' as such and there's nothing stopping you from doing it.

 

You might get a few messages from people though, as everyone on the opposing team and maybe even some on your team will be in awe of your superior game-playing skills and will wonder how you manage to be so cool and brilliant at the same time.

Spawn killing is the sign of a poor gamer if the only way you can rack up kills is by hiding then it shows no skill what so ever.

They should add a mod so that if they stay still for more than 5 secs in the enemy spawn they explode.

Might teach them to play properly.

Likewise. Spawn trappers, much like glitchers, are nothing but cheating scum.

With spawntrapping i mean, shooting in the area of the enemy.

And that is allowed?

But if you stand next to a spawn and kill everyone who spawns there, than is it boosting.

And this not allowed?

^ This 

 

I was playing a game online earlier where a whole team was spawn trapping. It totally ruined the game. Afterwards i created a 20 minute game in a different game mode where there was no set spawn points. 

 

A few of them joined, so i went and made a cup of tea and a bacon butty. I let the accumulate lots of kills and cash, then 10 seconds before the end of the game i left so they lost everything they earned. :smileytongue:

It's a very poor game tactic that alienates honest players that usually ends with killing off certain games multiplayer by putting off new players. Play fairly or not at all or stick to private servers for cheating.

But is it now allowed or not allowed, can you get banned for it?

Because some people say it's allowed and some people say it's not allowed

I'm asking this because a friend spawntraps.
